Amal Clooney's Interview With BBC March 2017

Amal Clooney Is Using Her Newfound Fame to Bring Attention to Deserving Causes

When Amal Clooney first started dating her movie star husband, George, there was a lot of (warranted) backlash to publications who referred to the highly accomplished human rights attorney as simply "George Clooney's girlfriend," and later, "George Clooney's wife." Although it's important for Amal to be defined by her own achievements, she's making the best of her unexpected star status. In an interview with BBC News at Six's Fiona Bruce, the 39-year-old mum-to-be said she's thankful that her newfound fame helps publicise certain issues.

"There's a lot of my work that takes place behind closed doors that is not ever seen," she said. "I think if there are more people who now understand what's happening about the Yazidis and ISIS, and if there can be some action that results from that, that can help those clients, then I think it's a really good thing to give that case the extra publicity that it may get." Amal is in the midst of representing human-trafficking survivor Nadia Murad in her crusade against ISIS, although she and George have been forced to limit their travel plans since she's expecting twins.
